The SciNight Journal Club is an open forum in which students and faculty can meet to informally discuss primary scientific research articles.
During the Spring 2020 semester, the journal club will meet every other Thursdays at 7:30pm on the West Charleston campus in room H301J.
Each SciNight session the article to be discussed will be posted on this website below. Download the article, read it, and come ready to discuss what you have learned with your fellow students and various faculty.
The articles will come from different disciplines within the sciences to address a variety of research interests here at CSN. The general topic of each session will be one of the following:
